Coast Canmore Hotel & Conference Centre
Big name chain, mediocre rooms
Stayed here 3 nights. Found the conference area nice, but the rooms didn’t meet our expectations of a “First Class” accommodation. Room was not very clean when we arrived. The beds were made very sloppy, hair in the tub, etc… The bathroom sink took forever to drain. Was surprised that the rooms didn’t have a microwave or mini fridge. Did have a coffee pot, but they only leave dark roast coffee, and one morning we didn’t even have coffee whitener. TV had very basic cable, with no option to rent movie channels at all. Parking was also very limited.
My husband and I have stayed at this hotel many times when it was the Radisson, and expected the same experience this time. The room itself was functional, but the housekeeping was poor. There was what I guess to be coffee or cola sprayed down the wall, the ice bucket was never emptied or cleaned our entire stay. The outlet for the coffee maker was dangerous, and the plug would just hang halfway out of it. The coffeemaker was pretty dirty, which i cleaned, taking off what seemed like a years worth of grime. We left a cheerio on the floor to see if it would be vacuumed up, it was there our whole stay. The carpets in both the hallways and the rooms are well past their prime. Both are stained and just overall kind of gross. I did not feel very good about my one year playing on it, so she spent a lot of time while we were there playing on the bed. The shower sounded like a tea kettle while it was on, and it also did not drain very well. I have honestly stayed at places far cheaper then this and been more impressed with cleanliness. The wifi was very slow during the evenings, making streaming a show difficult. The front desk staff were the highlight of the stay, and were very warm and helpful. They really try very hard to make your stay pleasant. We will most likely be looking at a new place to stay next year.
Hotel is bigger scale, hot tub was not working and the pool is a far walk, you need to walk outside then go into another door inside to use, average pool for the price expected more. Beds hard no instruction on using the remote for the beds. No fridge or micro wave , expensive for what you get. Smaller room as well, no breakfast ,
Very relaxing :)
Only here for 3 days total, we didn’t have too much time to use all the amenities of the hotel. However, the room was great. It was clean and everything worked. The only thing that I wish was that there would be a small refrigerator as well, but not completely necessary. It was unfortunate that the hot tub was out of service as we may have used it during our stay. All in all, breakfast was great, staff was very friendly and I would come back. Not to mention how close it is to downtown- quite convenient.
Our experience at this hotel was not good. First of all it was booked as a Radisson Hotel NOT Coast (Radisson sold it and really screwed Coast). They had us being booked for 1 day instead of 2 (Blame to Company NOT the staff). Staff took care of it. The Stains on the carpet in the hall are beyond bad. Cracked tile in the bathroom that would have most certainly cut our feet open had we stepped on it barefoot. The vacuum apparently does not extend far enough to reach the cheerios under the bed or the dust in the corners and behind the furniture (I dont think it had been dusted in at least a year back there) Staff took care of it. Nasty stuff in bathtub drain area. Nasty shower curtain. Elevator has broken tile. OH Shower curtain.. Don’t ask.
